PAY ATTENTION

 

 

Everywhere we look
nearby news, activity
we can’t escape
unless we fly
above it all.

It takes a herd of eyes,
a flock of senses
to survive the wild
and domestic
intrusions

of this world.
No time to lollygag
when everyone becomes
someone’s breakfast.
Pay attention.

  1. A “herd of eyes” would definitely make me pay attention.

    A poem for our times, for sure, John.
